The county president of the GOP, who is plaintiff Sidney Powell, a former Trump attorney in a typo fraud lawsuit, says she never agreed to take part in the lawsuit.
Jason Shepherd, Republican President of Cobb County, Georgia, said Atlanta Journal-Constitution Thursday morning, he and his associates need “more information” before they can sign Powell’s election fraud lawsuit. Powell has also filed lawsuits in Georgia and Michigan alleging widespread voter fraud, such as fake votes and observers who can’t keep an eye on the vote chart. But in addition to the formatting and typographical errors in the papers, one of the GOP plaintiffs never undertook to appear in the lawsuit.
Shepherd is one of seven plaintiffs in Powell’s “massive election fraud” lawsuit, which disputes the findings that Joe Biden thoroughly defeated Trump earlier this month. Conversation a Journal Constitution On Thursday, Shepherd issued a statement stating that he “never undertook to be a party to his complaint.
Shepherd added, “Guess what happens if you wait until the last minute.”
“We (Sidney Powell’s co-worker and I) discussed that the Cobb GOP is a plaintiff and I was open to it, given the many concerns we saw in Cobb County, but we needed more information to at least make sure that the executive officers they agreed to form a party in the lawsuit, “Shepherd wrote in a statement.
“I didn’t have that information until last night’s deadline, and I didn’t get the consensus from our other officers either, so I called Powell’s staff to say we unfortunately won’t be part of the lawsuit, but I’d be happy to work with him and Sidney Powell, and I would report any other irregularities I have seen in Cobb County.He confirmed that he understands.Guess that this will happen if you wait until the last minute.I guess what the officers probably want to stay in, not retreat, but reaching everyone today can be difficult to discuss, because it is Thanksgiving. “
The Trump campaign created a distance between Powell and Powell after appearing several times over the past month alongside Rudy Giuliani and other legal team members. Giuliani and Powell once at last week’s press conference revealed Trump’s “multiple path to victory” by reversing states including Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Arizona and Pennsylvania. No state has so far accepted the legal challenges of the president’s team.
Powell was even ridiculed by Fox News presenter Tucker Carlson last week, who claimed his team was pushing for the evidence, and he “got angry and told us to stop contacting him.”
